Does your garage door opener plug into an outlet located nearby? If so the answer is yes, you can just use a plug mounted protector. It does not need to be specific to your opener model or type:
But if you've had a problem like this, your better bet may be a Whole House unit. And your best bet is to use both.
I created a little guide Whole House surge protection over here:
(I was working on protecting a fire alarm and some boiler motors, but the principle is the same).
Be warned that "power strip surge protectors, despite impressive sounding warranties, have a limited record in protecting devices. Some are poorly designed, others are actually fraudulent knock offs". The whole house ones are only made by respected companies and they do actually work.
